Are you a vegetarian? Did you know that what you decide to buy at the supermarket could attract a potential date? In this eavesdropping lesson, we listen as Sara and John discuss the ins and outs of picking up dates in the supermarket. After this lesson, you might want to think about spicing up your shopping cart.

John: Frozen pop tarts and tater tots?
John: It’s probably not my type of girl.
Sara: Okay. What about a girl who has apples and spinach and with broccoli?
John: No, I think there needs to be more of a blend. Like, some apples, but then a frozen pizza. And then some beer, but then some wine, too.
Sara: Oh, right. And some bottled water. So they could have like popcorn, bottled water, beer, wine, ravioli, cheese and sausage. How ‘bout that?
John: That sounds hot!
I used to be a vegetarian. I would have been the person with the apples, spinach and broccoli in my cart. I had no idea that I could have been turning off guys with my food choices. Have you ever gone to the meat department to meet someone? Maybe you should become a ‘flexitarian’. This is someone who generally doesn’t eat meat, but will do so under certain circumstances. Here’s some homework. If you generally don’t eat meat, go to the meat department and get some steak. See if anyone makes conversation with you. You never know. You could meet the love of your life!
